Who we are
The Rotary Club of the North Downs
Welcome to our Club website.
Our Club was chartered in 1978 with support from the Rotary Clubs of Dartford and Darent Valley. Our members come from a variety of backgrounds resulting in a wide breadth of experience, knowledge and interests. We are a very sociable club and organise a wide ranging social calendar as well as supporting many local and international charities.
We are part of a worldwide organisation called Rotary International, with more than 1.2 million members in 35,000 clubs. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto 'Service Above Self'.
Rotarians are men and women who take an active role in their communities while greatly enriching their personal and professional lives. A Rotary club contains a diverse group of people from the community that the club serves. As a member of a Rotary club, you have the opportunity to give something back, to give hope to those less fortunate and to make lives worthwhile and fulfilled.
